“Boss, we screwed up… The Time Sweepers nailed us with a PAUSE Control, and… duhhhhh… they took our Big Crystal fragment."
Matteo, leader of Team Pigtail, is a Tom Tom that searched for and acquired a Big Crystal fragment for the Tom Tom Gang during the Big Crystal incident in Blinx 2: Masters of Time and Space.
His outfit is the standard Tom Tom outfit with the shirt's colour altered to orange. His glasses are red. Additionally, Matteo has a tattoo on his right arm.
He wields a grenade launcher, doing field work unlike Cino and Ugo, though he also appears much less confident and reliable in his work than they do.
Early in the Big Crystal incident, Matteo and his team travel to the Ever Snow World, eventually finding a Big Crystal fragment. The team was unable to return the fragment to the Tom Tom HQ, however, as it was stolen by Team NecoJi during a confrontation quickly ended by the use of a pause time control. This incident prompted Benito to demand the disabling of the Time Sweepers' time controls, leading to Bombay's mission in the Destiny Ruins to steal the time control neutralizer. Additionally, Matteo was left without dinner that day (according to cut content).
He later learned how to bypass Guard Sweepers' time barriers, explaining the process to other Tom Toms much to Benito's delight, though Benito himself took credit for the discovery in his place. Similar to Cino and Ugo, Matteo is more often in close proximity to Benito than other Tom Toms.
- “Please, Boss, I’ve got a bad feeling about this…”
- “Okay Boss!”
- “Boss, we screwed up… The Time Sweepers nailed us with a PAUSE Control, and… duhhhhh… they took our Big Crystal fragment."
- “This is Matteo from Team Pigtail! Time Grenades work on those blue ones! Throw a time grenade to remove a Time Sweeper’s barrier. Throw one at a time monster and attack them while the world is stopped. I saw some Sweepers beat them that way. I’m sure it’ll work!”
- “This is Matteo with the advance team. The reading on the Big Crystal is weak. I can’t tell where it is alone. We need info from the other teams!”
